Janet Erskine Stuart Centenary Celebration
Network of Sacred Heart Schools
“Life Lived” Calendar
Words inspire. The words of our Sacred Heart Mothers offer us an opportunity to connect their wisdom and insight to our own personal and professional experiences. Their words invite us to navigate our lives with the assurance of rooting each daily moment in our shared Sacred Heart context.
As we prepare to mark the centenary of Janet Erskine Stuart’s death, we invited members of our Sacred Heart family, and in particular students, faculty, staff, and alumni of our Network schools to engage the words of Mother Stuart by reflecting on her writings and submitting favorite quotes.
Our goal was to compile a calendar of inspirational quotes submitted by individuals representing our various Sacred Heart constituencies who would include their own reflection on how that quote inspired and nourished their heart and spirit. Like the “Wisdom of Madeleine Sophie,” calendar created by Lisa Buscher, RSCJ and Kathleen Hughes, RSCJ, the “Life Lived” calendar of Janet Erskine Stuart will be made up of daily quotes which will include the name and Sacred Heart affiliation of the contributor as well as a brief response/reflection on why she/he chose this quote.
This “Life Lived” calendar will be made available in a digital format, accessible as both a downloadable electronic document for accessibility by desktop computers and personal media devices. The electronic formatting would emphasize Janet Stuart’s innovative vision and pedagogical foresight. The "Life Lived" will also be available for purchase in print format as a perpetual calendar (see image). Resources for Mother Stuart quotes can be found in "Joy in Faith," "The Inward Life," or at resources on sofie.org.
Entries submitted but not chosen for the calendar will be made available on the sofie.org site. A calendar application for electronic devices developed by a student from Stuart Hall High School will also be made available as a gift from Schools of the Sacred Heart - San Francisco.
Submissions were collected through September 30, 2013.
